main33_Manhattan_Cocktail_.jpgBring back the fabulous disco era of the 70s—when the glitz and glamour of the dance floor invaded everything—through one of this season’s recurring trends: Sequins. But this does not mean looking like a disco ball. This year’s sparkling trend involves an all-out chic campaign involving subtly shimmering pieces that are a little bit on the dark glam and rock ‘n roll side.

Indeed, this trend is fab but tricky to wear, so if you’re worried about looking like a tacky showgirl, here are some tips for wearing sequined pieces:

Tone it down with the right accessories. Matchy-matchy doesn’t always work in this case. If your wearing a single sequined piece of clothing, that’s enough for you to rock the trend. Complement dark solid sequined items with one-of-a-kind shoes and simple jewelry.

Sequins can be casual too. Who says you can only wear glitter to a sizzling night out? Bring out the fashionista in you and wear a sequined top or blazer during the day with your favorite pair of jeans. Matching it with casual staples like denim help downplay the shimmer a bit and allows you to work the trend even during daytime.

Go single and solid. Another way to downplay sequins if you’re careful not to go overboard is to wear solid colored pieces or in small doses like on a clutch, belt, or shoes. Avoid multi-colored pieces if you’re not too comfortable wearing this shiny trend.
